Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.48 Average Rating
UNA is absolutely amazing and I love it here. The town surrounding it is great and filled with little places to visit like Trobridges. The campus is also great.
Sierra from Oxford, AL
UNA is a great place to live and to go to school. It's small enough to walk across the campus but large enough where you have the opportunity to meet someone new every day. If you're looking for a place to go to college you should check out the University of North Alabama!
Ellen from Pinson, AL
UNA is a great school with high-standard academics and a close-knit student community. The campus and Florence area is beautiful place to live, and the area offers loads of entertainment.
potentially_smart from Florence, AL
I got the chance to attend Preview day last year. I was highly impressed by the way I was treated by the professors and students. I really liked it.
Lindsey from Southside, AL
UNA is perfect for any student wanting to go to a university but still go to a close and tight-knit school. UNA isn't too big and isn't too small. Everyone is friendly and the classes are small enough to get to know your peers.
Courtney from Dennis, MS
The University of North Alabama is a great college to attend. The campus is easy to navigate and the faculty, staff, and other students are helpful and friendly individuals. The University offers a large array of classes and majors as well as a variety of experiences that are essential to the college student.
